Reading Peter Kim’s post from yesterday, “The Plague of Plagiarism” was both enlightening and somewhat disheartening. As well, David Armano’s post How to Spot Social Media Snake Oil, had something to say about the same issue too, though just a tad bit more extreme in his professional prism of trust.
But then I saw this, the 8 irresistable principles of fun and things were put back in perspective. However there was one line from it that caught my eye and it was by Judy Garland-she was Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, and it was this:
“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”
Boy, does that resonate.
